OUR MIDDLE EAST JOURNEY
In 2021, our journey began with heartache. The pandemic and the loss of Gretchen’s father turned our lives upside down. Rejected from a country we called home, we lost everything we’d built as a young couple. During a layover, changing border restrictions forcibly separated us—me in New Zealand, my wife in the Philippines—just four months into our marriage. Desperate to reunite, we sought refuge in different countries but found no place to accept us both. After prayer and perseverance, the Middle East opened its borders. With empty bank accounts and no clear plans, we reunited there, feeling it was where we were meant to be.
In the Middle East, amidst uncertainties, God worked wonders. We led missions, partnered with churches, and started an Encounter Gathering, witnessing healing, forgiveness, and freedom. We began a ministry school, empowering students to embrace their identity and walk in the King’s power.
Taking a sabbatical in New Zealand, we sought God’s guidance. Despite world chaos, we’re certain of our path—returning to fulfill the mission Jesus called us to. Yet, we can’t do it alone.
